One of my favourite Ben Harper songs is titled 'She's Only Happy In The Sun' and it's a statement that rings true for my life, and my mood. I definitely find the winter months to be a huge struggle, not so much for the cold but for the lack of sunlight. The weather in Toronto was particularly dark and gloomy this weekend, and just as I found my energy levels slipping to an all time low I looked no further than my closet to turn my mood around. Enter a pink fuzzy jacket paired with burgundy mini dress; an unexpected colour pairing, but so fun on a gloomy day. I was having so much fun twirling in my bright wardrobe choices that I completely forgot how miserable it was outside! I may only be happy in the sun, but I've also learned that it's possible to create your own sunshine.
|Dress - Aritzia, Coat & Boots - Zara|
This pink fuzzy coat is a great score from the bi-annual Zara sale. Although I need another jacket like I need a hole in the head, I honestly couldn't pass this one up - how fun is it? Plus this fun pink coat rang up to just over $20 so to me it was a no brainer. I'm fully expecting this piece to take me into the spring months, while also keeping me cozy for winter.
What do you guys think of this colour pairing? Are you also affected by the sun cycles? How have you learned to cope? Let me know!
